Having initially played for hometown's FK Priština, Đorović joined Red Star Belgrade in 1993. He went on to appear in exactly 100 league matches and, aged almost 26, moved abroad after signing with Spanish club Celta de Vigo.
Soon, interest arose from major teams, such as U.C. Sampdoria and Arsenal. However, he decided to stay at least for the 1998–99 season at Celta, where he would eventually share team with his brother Zoran (who had absolutely no impact for the Galicians) and play 126 competitive games, his La Liga debut coming on 31 August 1997 in a 2–1 home win against Real Zaragoza.
Having had one attempt to sign the player previously rebuffed, Deportivo de La Coruña manager Javier Irureta signed Đorović in 2001, having already bought him from Red Star four years earlier. However, the player's career at Depor would be constantly marred by injuries as he earned over €2 million per season, one of the highest in the squad.
For 2003–04 Đorović was loaned, alongside Dani Mallo, Roberto Acuña and José Manuel, to Elche CF in the second division. After featuring rarely throughout the campaign he returned to Deportivo, and was immediately released despite still having one year in his contract. He retired shortly after.
Đorović made his debut for Yugoslavia national team on 23 December 1994, playing the second half of a 0–2 friendly loss in Brazil, in Porto Alegre.
He gained 48 caps more in the next seven years, being part of the setups at the 1998 FIFA World Cup (playing in all the matches and minutes during the tournament, as the nation bowed out in the round-of-16) and UEFA Euro 2000.
